Default Modern Warfare 2's Map Pack Priced at $15!

Wow, Talk about ****ing over your customers. $15 bucks for 3 new maps and 2 rereleases... what total ****.

I hope the next Call of Duty game bombs, the series needs a hiatus. It's lost all its thunder and is selling by brand only.

The **** part is if you dont have this pack because maps are random you will get kicked from half the games you try to join.

Price of PC and PS3 versions are unknown due to it being exclusive to the X360 for the time being.

So is this the map pack that adds about 10 more hours to SP play? Didn't think so. Pass.

10 more hours? That's about 4 hours longer than it took me to beat the retail version of the game which cost me $45 more. :P

If they're smart they will do what Gears of War 2 did and separate the game types based on whether or not you have the DLC. That way, players can choose to play DLC or not, and the players they are with are guaranteed to have it.

Yep. Just think, if a fraction of the people who own the game buy the DLC, the company will make over $10 million.

I hope it fails. 3 maps for $15, what a joke!

are they completely new 3 maps? Isn't there suppose to be revamped maps of some of the classics from mw1?...If MW2 was a proper PC Port with Dedicated/Mod Support then those maps would have ended up properly done for free....

In the end...they do this because they can, and because console players will end up paying 4 it.

Not a chance this is going to sell very well on the PC, games almost dead after BFBC2 release.

So annoyed...i wish they ****ing release the god dam dedicated servers to it...Local Servers with 20-30ms ping beats the hell out of p2p 250-300 ping. AND NO NOT EVERYONE IN ****ING AUS CAN AFFORD BUSINESS LEVEL CONNECTION (This is for those in the USA)

The upload pings in australia are god awful to have p2p gaming, might be ok for RTS / MMO, but not for a FPS.

I really like MW2 but I won't pay $15 for new maps. Heck, I won't pay anything for the new maps. Free or no sell IW.
